Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Archives of the Dutch East India Company ( VOC) and the Local Institutions in Batavia (Jakarta) contains the table of contents and the preface. The VOC (Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie, the Dutch East India Company) was the largest of the early modern European trading companies operating in Asia. Its operations produced not only warehouses packed with spices, coffee, tea, textiles, porcelain and silk, but also shiploads of documents. Data on political, economic, cultural, religious, and social conditions spread over an enormous area circulated between the VOC establishments, the administrative centre of the trade in Batavia, now the city of Jakarta, and the Board of Directors in the Netherlands.

Keywords: Asia; Batavia; Dutch East India Company; European trading companies; Netherlands; Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie
